Finance Alumni Sees Carey as Prime Investment
When Frank Wang graduated with a bachelor’s degree in finance from the University of Toronto, he had already set his mind to becoming “a great businessperson.” But he knew he still needed a leg up, so he sought a master’s in finance to bolster his skills.
As he explored graduate business schools, he was drawn to the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School because of its newness. Wang, who is interested in entrepreneurship, liked the idea of getting in early on an investment.
“The reason why I wanted to come to Carey is that Carey is a very entrepreneurial school,” Wang said. “It’s exciting to be a part of something new, something different. I think having the Johns Hopkins name attached to the school tells you how promising the future is for Carey.”
Wang, who graduated in August 2017, said he does not regret his decision. His time at Carey introduced him to new facets of finance, eventually leading him to seek employment in the emerging cryptocurrency sector as an analyst or trader.
Wang said his experience at Carey has “opened doors to a new world for me.” Wang touted the quality of the professors, who he said were “really helpful” and offered a variety of perspectives. He was also impressed by the quality of his classmates, saying, “The students here are really smart. I’ve been blown away by them.”
The Carey Business School’s mission “to teach business with humanity in mind” also appealed to Wang.
“Business is a human enterprise,” he said. ”To me, it makes the most sense to consider the human aspects of business.”
